Pirates and Musketeers an even matchup on the diamond

Pirates and Musketeers both carry swords, and as it turns out, the Seton Hall and Xavier baseball teams have plenty in common on the diamond. The two sides met for a three-game series in Cincinnati, Ohio, from Thursday, April 13 to Saturday, April 15, with the Musketeers taking two of three and thereby gaining a one-game lead over the Pirates in the Big East standings. On the surface the teams look comparatively balanced. Only that...

Anicka Fajnorova takes care of business on and off the tennis court

Not many people can say they achieved one of their life goals while still a teenager; Anicka Fajnorova is one of the rare exceptions. Because every time she steps foot onto the court with her Seton Hall Pirate teammates, Fajnorova is living out a goal which she had set from a young age. “College tennis was my goal since I was a kid,” Fajnorova said. “College was the top for me. I had the option to choose to go pro, or continue my...

SHU baseball completes undefeated weekend with win over Lehigh

The Seton Hall baseball team finished a perfect weekend at Owen T. Carroll Field, beating Lehigh 3-0 on Sunday afternoon. The win is Shane McCarthy’s first on the season, and a much-welcomed one for the starter who entered the day 0-3 with a 9.45 ERA on the young season. McCarthy went a long way in lowering his earned run number, pitching five scoreless innings while tallying three strikeouts, and allowing only two hits. Lehigh...

What Turner Sports Champions League acquisition means for the soccer television landscape

Business runs the world, and in sports, television drives that business.

Latvian aces talk relationship, teamwork at SHU

On the court, with a racket in hand; that is Krista Cerpina’s comfort zone. It’s the sport that helped the freshman tennis player from Riga, Latvia make her way across the Atlantic Ocean to Seton Hall. It’s also a sport that has ironically taken her out of her comfort zone, adjusting to what is in many ways a different sport altogether in the NCAA’s team-oriented style of tennis competition.

Eva Gonzalez: American born, Mexican capped, Pirate true

Midfielder Eva Gonzalez will be a player to watch next fall at Owen T. Carroll Field. What a fan won’t see from her play on the field alone is the adversity and continued sacrifice that Gonzalez endures to play the sport she loves, while still committing to her academics. Gonzalez is not just a student athlete, but it could be said a student athlete, plus one. She balances her schooling with her collegiate athletics, but is also...

For most people, Tiger Woods withdrawing from yet another tournament this past week may seem like just another frustrating disappointment for Woods post-scandal.

I speak as someone who is now dealing with two herniated discs, and knows the pain, not just physical, but psychological as well, which...
